I do hope you have enjoyed a most Joyful,
Healthy and Abundant week.
Yesterday was the 19th birthday of my
youngest son Declan and my mother and mother-in-law decided to spend a few days
with us over this weekend.
They are always most welcome and we all love
having them here with us to spend time together, and to walk around the
beautiful medieval town near to where we live.
I usually dedicate my Sunday, most joyfully
to the writing of your Newsletter , but as I unexpectedly only have a small
amount of time available before we enjoy the day with our visitors, I have
decided that there is simply not enough time this week. You see - I never know what the subject of
the Newsletter will be, or what will be written - I allow the words to flow no matter how
long it takes - only then is it complete.
So rather than compromise the flow, and the
message, whatever it may have been, I have decided, with difficulty, to not
publish a Newsletter at all - just for this week.
I hope you will understand, and trust that
your Newsletter will most assuredly return as usual next Sunday with in its
I would however like to take this
opportunity, on behalf of my son Declan, to ask for your help in supporting him
in a voluntary undertaking for an exceptional cause in June. Here then are the details.
1000 Mile/1600km Sponsored Cycle For The
"Wild Futures" Monkey Sanctuary
Many Readers may recall that last year, in
2011, my son, Declan completed a 150 mile cycle ride in a single day to in
order to raise much needed funds for an Animal Sanctuary where he frequently
volunteers, and also to fund a much needed and complex surgery on the leg of a
German Shepherd dog who, I am delighted to say, underwent the procedure, made a
full recovery, and is now very happy and well.
Thanks to the exceptional generosity of many
kind and caring people, including many Newsletter Readers, Declan was able to
raise £6000 which is around $9600 for these excellent causes which has since
been put to use for all of the animals.
In June Declan is undertaking a very much
more ambitious Sponsored Cycle together with a small group of volunteers at the Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary located
in the South of England where Declan also volunteered his services for a month
last year and will be doing so again this year after the Sponsored Cycle.
Declan and other members of the group will be
cycling the entire length of Britain, from Lands End at the southernmost tip of
England, to John o' Groats at the Northern most tip of Scotland over the course
of several days.
This is an extremely physically and mentally demanding
undertaking, that few would contemplate, of nearly 1000 miles of extremely
varied terrain, roads and conditions.
All of the funds raised will go to Wild Futures which you may read about
Futures Monkey Sanctuary
Wild Futures is managed by an extremely
dedicated group of mostly volunteers, some who live there permanently, others,
like Declan who volunteer their services from time to time, with no form of
remuneration whatsoever and none expected.
You may read all about Wild Futures on the website link provided above, but suffice it to
say that the dedicated volunteers at Wild Futures carry out day after day, week
after week, year after year an extremely valuable and demanding service for
abandoned and abused primates - often previously used/abused in the so called
"entertainment industry", as well as contributing to Wildlife
Conservation efforts around the world.
Declan was and is most grateful for all your
support last year and would again be most grateful indeed for any support you
can offer this year in this most demanding undertaking for such a wonderful and
All contributions will be most welcome and
valuable and will go to a wonderful cause.
Here is the donation link which Declan has
set up exclusively for this purpose:

sending your Newsletter as usual next Sunday, and wish you a most Healthy,
Joyful and Abundant week.
